I'm being really hyper-organised and have already started making my armour for next year's London Film and Comic Con (LFCC). I've decided to make Loras Tyrell's armour as it is described in the Game of Thrones novel, with the forget-me-nots and gemstones! Big task, but since I've given myself a year to do it, I should be able to finish it in plenty of time. =D

Finally some headway on the House Tyrell dress. It's pretty much all sewn, save for the pleat work, but I still have a lot to do on the under bodice. I can get it done, in.... what three weeks? Less than that? Pshaw!

(Also finally got the DVD set. <3! Yay!)

Hey there! I'm looking to cosplay Game of Thrones, mostly for my mom because I grew up with the books around the house, admiring the covers and she's such a big fan that it would be a great surprise for her, and since the first season started airing, I've also started being a big fan too.

So here I am, wondering which of Sansa or Arya I'd fit better. While keeping in mind that I am not a strong sewing person.
Here's a picture of me. Looking as natural as I can. Haha. Side-ish: http://i45.tinypic.com/2mr5ydg.jpg Front-ish: http://i47.tinypic.com/34npowi.jpg

Both of the outfits I'd love to cosplay have some difficulties I'd like to overcome. The Arya one being the second season with the straps, and the Sansa problem is her hair and the belt.

Thanks in advance!

How tall are you? I'd say if you're short, do Arya, but I think with the right wig, you'd make a beautiful Sansa! You have a regal look about you.

I'm 5'5", very average height, unfortunately. Not short, nor tall!
I agree. It's all about the wig, which I'm not really sure how to get, because of how Sansa's hair is always slicked back.
I think I really need a lace-front wig mixed with a skin top, but the arda one I found is too long, and does not come in red.. :x

Thanks for answering!

(apologies for the crappy cell-phone quality pic)

(I fixed it so the left doesn't have so many 'ripples' after the pic) Obviously I don't have the brooches yet...

Anyway, my question to you all is this: I took a creative liberty adding in all those light threads vertically into it to give it the same effect that hers has, but I don't feel I got it... So what should I do? Leave it? Take them out completely? (then I'd have a bunch of holes in it..) or replace them with a darker (yet still lighter) threadthing? Or perhaps any other suggestions?

Any constructive criticism would be appreciated, thank you

Also, though I know you all know it, a quick reference just so you don't have to go looking it up:

What kind of fabric are you using for that? I am planning on putting together the same costume.

I used an upholstery fabric from JoAnnes (I think it was still there last time I was there....) Like a woven brown fabric, and then turned it inside out and added to it.

Here is a re-vamped version of this shirt. One day when I have the time I plan to hand-weave it....

Hii!

My mom gave me a dragonfly necklace, so I can do Sansa!

I just have a hard time choosing wigs.
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=...d=15696084019& I like the color on this one, but it doesn't have a skin top.
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=...d=14560228640& Love this one, but it might be too light, although I think the photos of the wig is photoshopped.
OR
Should I save money, and get a lace front wig from arda? Because all of her hair is up, or braided. :x

It's not from the TV series, but:
I just bleached my hair, and I'm almost done with a suit of red and black scale armor I had been making for Fighter (FFI). I think I'm going to make myself a House Targaryen banner, I am TOTALLY cosplaying as Prince Rhaegar.
It's gonna be awesome.

Finally getting started on my Eddard Stark. I commissioned the brigandine, and am looking for fabric for the shirt and gambeson. I'm going to be commissioning a lace front wig. I have everything else. I have a bit of weight I want to drop, as well. MAN am I excited for this.
